Today is one of those typical February days that we get here in Massachusetts. The weather all of a sudden turns warm, snow and ice start to melt, and everyone is yearning for Spring. While the weather is a welcome occurrence, its important not to get to far ahead of ourselves. Any New Englander can recall on a mild February that ended up with harsh snow storm filled March. However, you can use this time to think about your garden! If you are planning to maintain a garden, you can actually use late February, and early March to plant the following vegetables:
Broccoli: Broccoli can be planted in Massachusetts in late February and early March. This window closes in March, as April will be too late to plant broccoli for a successful harvest.
Cabbage: Cabbage, specifically summer Cabbage (the green kind) can also be planted in late February or Early March. This is a great addition to any garden, as its a delicious base layer to summer salads!
Cauliflower: A third veggie that can now start planting for a successful harvest is Cauliflower. Cauliflower is part of the broccoli family of vegetables, so it makes sense you can plant it now for a good harvest.
Onions: One of the most versatile vegetables for cooking is also very versatile when it comes to times you can plant it. A 3- month stretch from January to March is the perfect time for planting onions in Massachusetts.
